  • The Obamas reportedly will not attend Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's wedding

Sky News reports that names of British politicians like Prime Minister Theresa May, and Jeremy Corbyn do not appear in the list.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have not invited political leaders to their wedding.

Considering British Prime Minister Theresa May and Leader of the Labour Party Jeremy Corbyn were not invited to the wedding, obviously, USA sitting president Trump also didn't make the cut.

"It has been decided that an official list of political leaders - both United Kingdom and global - is not required for Prince Harry and Ms. Markle's wedding", a Kensington Palace spokesman said. The decision was made due to the size of the venue - St George's Chapel in Windsor Castle, smaller than Westminster Abbey - and Prince Harry's status in the monarchy.

Who made the guest list?

But it seems that the couple are not likely to invite world leaders, at least not in their official capacity. The rules of succession mean that, unlike William, Harry is unlikely to one day occupy the throne. Despite the close friendship between the British prince and the former US president, it turns out the Obamas are not among the expected 600 guests.

Who is not invited to the Royal Wedding?

The Royal Palace clarified that since the royal wedding is a private event and not an official function so it would not invite world leaders.

The list included people who ran a wide variety of charity organizations as well as veterans from the armed forces who have suffered life-changing injuries.

These guests will be a part of the 2500 members of the public and figures from charities the couple supports invited to watch the celebrations on the day.

The BBC reported 12-year-old Amelia Thompson, who was injured during an attack at the Ariana Grande concert in Manchester, was among those who received an invitation.

Invited as a partner of The Diana Award, which encourages positive change through a series of programs including one focused on mentorship, TAPS will be represented at the May 19 wedding at Windsor Castle by Diana Hosford, TAPS vice president for sports and entertainment.
